We return to the beautiful island of Jersey in the Channel Islands for our annual club rally. It was 6 years ago when we last visited this historical and truly stunning place that’s small on size, but big on personality. The roads are made for our little cars and being quiet are perfect for some awesome country and seaside convoys. Oh and remember the island’s speed limit is set to 40 mph / 64 km per hour, perfect for our Figs!

Our Venue Hotel
Our Venue Hotel has been run by Matthew & Jonathan Smale (Figaro Owner & Club Member) since 1985 and owned by the family for over 50 years.

Set in five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens on the outskirts of Saint Helier, far enough away from the hustle and bustle, yet only five minutes drive from the town centre and the vibrant village of Saint Aubin is also only 5 minutes away.


There is still much to organise and arrange but below is a flavour of our Itinerary.

Ten Pin Bowling!
We thought it would be fun to go bowling so will organise a Group Booking. Maybe we can divide into Car Colour Teams! MFA Bowl Jersey is the island’s only indoor tenpin bowling center. Equipped with 18 lanes with automated scoring system, arcade games including pool tables.

FRIDAY 18th May

You have a choice to go on our Jersey Scavenger Hunt or do your own thing?

Jersey Scavenger Hunt
We will be issuing a clue sheet on the day and send you on your way. You will be required to answer questions along the way, whilst hoping not to be seen by everyone else (which might be difficult in your Figaro)! Prizes for the top score will be awarded on our final evening.

 

Do your own thing
Why not go and explore the Jersey National Park? The Park extends over an area of approximately 30 miles (48km) of Jersey’s coastline, Les Écréhous, Les Minquiers and Pierres de Lecq or Paternosters. Here is a downloadable map of things to explore, places to eat and activities to enjoy in and around the Jersey National Park.
